I spent my pre-teen years going into Listening Booth buying records and staring at the guitars they had for sale. Lots of “The Paul’s” and Ovation acoustics nicely lit and all surrounded by natural wood paneling and shelving. I still have a soft spot for the older models. This is a ‘79 model 1617 and was kept in great shape. Who knows, maybe the original owner bought it at that very Listening Booth. Quite possibly! $675 with original case. #ovation
It’s a sad state of affairs but we now live in an age where rockstar legends and their families can’t afford their medical expenses. Head over and help Dick Dale’s family pay for the medical expenses that he accumulated during his later years...and all hale the King of Surf Rock! Use the link on this profile page.

SOLD! 2007 Korean made “Bowie” Belvedere Deluxe! Matches the the two Belvederes I made for Earl Slick and David Bowie right around this time. This one I reconditioned and got playing perfectly! Also added a new Bigsby! Very clean. $925 with new Custom DiPinto hard case!
The USA tilt neck Galaxies are more complexed to build than the flat head stock design. The CNC cuts the back profile but I finish it up by hand by routing a truss rod slot on the front. I made a sled that lets the neck slide along a fence on the router table. Dual action truss rod fits great! #luthier
Old beat up Korean Galaxie 2 got a new USA relic neck! #troubleeverydayband
